in the usa, the INTERNET company provides you with a CABLE MODEM and WIFI ROUTER at a monthly cost (along with their service)

If I want WIFI in the entire 3 bedroom house in ecuador ... should I just bring the modem and router ..... or at the very least , bring the ROUTER , so that the internet signal will carry to all the bedrooms?

in the usa, the internet company usually gives you a MODEM, but not the router ... and in ecuador?

Do not bother bringing either your modem or router, you internet provider in Ecuador will provide all you need. You can also purchase range extenders to reach other parts of your house. I have a 3,000 sf house and I use two range extenders. Send me a private message including your email address and I will put you in touch with an American in Cuenca who will fix you up with everything you need.

The internet company provides a router that works well……..unless you need extened range, you need do nothing more……if you wish more range, buy something for that…..

How about areas other than Cuenca? Otavalo or Cotacachi for example. Will a router from the States work or just not necessary? Are they compatible with VOIP?
Thanks

In need of an ethernet cable from modem to router in the Salinas/San Lorenzo area. Does anybody know where I can find this short cable ? Is there an IT store in the area that might carry this type of cable ? Appreciate feedback. Thanks!

There are a number of IT stores in the Salinas/La Libertad area -- the closest is COMPUHELP on the north side of the via Salinas between Super Maxi and the Paseo Mall. There is also an IT store in the Paseo and often Juan Marcet the stationery store carries wires and cords.

Other stores exist firther into la Libertad and a yellow cab driver should be able to assist you.

it has been suggested elsewhere that you may want a dual router to insure quality uninterrupted service. the thought is you use two providers with both connected to the router, which constantly checks the signal strengh on both connections and switches seamlessly as needed. Any thoughts on that?

WiFi router is always a best a choice over modem as the former ensures better connectivity, but a few things need to be kept in mind before purchasing a router, which are, proper placement( for uniform signal strength all throughout), proper configuration, setting up a strong password for the router, installing regular firmware updates, I am currently using a Netgear WNR614 N300 Wi-Fi Router, I was facing a bit of configuration related issues, however I have managed to resolve the same with the help of https://netgears.support/blog/solve-netgear-router-configuration-issue/
